The Little Ricky Foundation

The Little Ricky Foundation We have this page to honor and Memorialize our precious angel Little Ricky 3 09/29/10-09/15/11 and to bring awareness to other families.
(10)

In loving memory of our precious Little Ricky (Rick Alan Bodine Jr. ) or as we called him P'Nut, who on September 15, 2011, at 11 months old passed away while in the care of home daycare provider Cassandra Gray. After P'nut's passing I discovered that Ms. Gray is convicted felon for prescription fraud to which we had NO KNOWLEDGE nor were there laws in place to prevent her from caring for children then or now, in addition Ms. Gray has a long history of breaking the law. This foundation has been founded to help raise awareness to other families of the hidden dangers of home daycare providers. We no longer live in the day and age that you can trust someone simply on their word or word of mouth of their character. This foundation is continually researching ways parents can help protect their children by having as many resources and as much information as needed so that they may be well informed when making the choice on where to place their child/children for care.. We want to honor P'nut's memory by helping as many families as possible. Our goals for this foundation is too continually bring awareness to the community and to our Nation. We are working on finding ways to change and pass laws to help keep the children of our nation that are in child care as safe as possible. We are determined to help other families not have to endure the loss our entire family has suffered with the loss of such a precious child. Children are the most precious gift this world has to offer as well as being our future. They should be protected in any and every way possible. Parents need more resources to be able to do their due diligence in choosing the safest and best child care facility for their children and when a child is harmed or dies in a child care provider's care, the laws should be more stringent to protect children and penalties should be stiff for those whom circumvent the law.

To P'Nuts Mother and Father and other bereaved parents that support this page.

Thank You Elly for posting yoir group page ๐Ÿ’™

I need this. All parents who have had their child die NEED this too.

Something I should read everyday. Especially on those dark, empty, threatening to swallow me whole days.

I have to tell you this.
You didnโ€™t fail. Not even a little.
You are not a horrible mother.
You didnโ€™t choose this. You didnโ€™t want this to happen. You didnโ€™t do anything wrong. It just happened. To you. Despite your begging, pleading, praying, hoping against all hope it would not. Even though everything within you was screaming no, no, no, no, no.
God didnโ€™t do this to punish you, smite you, or to teach you a lesson. THAT IS NOT GOD'S WAY. You could not have prevented this if you tried harder, prayed harder, or were a โ€œbetterโ€ person. Nor if you ate better, loved harder, yoga-ed more, did x, y, or z to the nth degreeโ€”fill in the blank with any other lie your mind devises. You could not have prevented this even if you could have predicted the future like no one can.
No, there is nothing more you could have done. You did everything you possibly could have. And you are the best mother there is because you would have done absolutely anything to keep your child alive. To breathe your last breath instead. To choose the pain all over again just to spend one more minute together. That is the ultimate kind of love. You are the ultimate kind of mother.
So wash your hands of any naysayers, betrayers, or those who sprinted in the other direction when you needed them most. Wash your hands of the people who may have falsely judged you, ostracized you, or stigmatized you because of what happened to you. Wash your hands of anyone who has made you feel less than by questioning everything you did or didnโ€™t do. Anyone whose words or looks have implied this was somehow your fault.
This was not your fault. This will never be your fault, no matter how many different ways someone tries to tell you it was.
Especially if that someone happens to be you. Sometimes itโ€™s not what others are saying that keeps you shackled in shame. Sometimes you adopt othersโ€™ misguided opinions and assumptions. Sometimes itโ€™s your own inner voice that shoves you into the darkest corner of despair, like an abuser, telling you over and over and over again you failed as a mother. Convincing you if only this and what if that, it never would have happened. Saying you coulda, shoulda done this or that so your child would not have died.
That is a lie of the sickest kind. Do not believe it, not even for a second. Do not let it sink into your bones. Do not let it smother that beautiful, beautiful light of yours.
Instead, breathe in this truth with every part of yourself: You are the best damn mother in the entire world.
No one else could do what you do. No one else could ever mother your child as well as you can, as well as you are. No one else could let your childโ€™s love and light shine through the way you do. No one else could mother your dead child as bravely. No one else could carry this unrelenting burden as courageously. It is the heaviest, most torturous burden there is.
There is no one, no one, no one who could ever, ever replace you. No one. You were chosen to be your childโ€™s mother. Yesโ€”chosen. And no one could parent your child better in life or in death than you do. You have within you a sacred strength.
You are the mother of all mothers.
So breathe, mama, keep breathing. Believe, mama, keep believing. Fight, mama, keep fighting for this truth to uproot the lies in your heartโ€”you didnโ€™t fail. Not even a little.
For whatever itโ€™s worth, I see you. I hear your guttural sobs. I feel your ache deep inside my bones. And it doesnโ€™t make me uncomfortable to put my fingers as a makeshift Band-Aid over the gaping hole in your heart until the scabs come, if and when they do.
It takes invincible strength to mother a child you can no longer hold, see, touch, or hear. You are a superhero mama. I see you fall down and get up, fall down and get up, over and over again. I notice the grit and guts it takes to pry yourself out of bed every single day and force your bloodied feet to stand up and keep walking. I see you walking this path of life youโ€™ve been given, where every breath and step apart from your child is a physical, emotional, and spiritual battleground. A fight for your own survival. A fight to quiet the insidious lies.
But the truth is, you havenโ€™t failed at all. In fact, itโ€™s quite the opposite.
You are the mother of all mothers.
Truly, the most inspiring, courageous, loving mother there isโ€”a warrior mama through and through.
For even in death, you lovingly mother your precious child still.
. . .

7 years ago today was the day your parents had to say Good Bye my sweet Grandson. You were left to be cared for by a Daycare Provider who at the time was highly recommended and even provided daycare for your cousins briefly.
It would be a few months before I uncovered that this Daycare Provider was in fact not the person she claimed to be and was a convicted felon and was able to keep false documents of county registration when in fact the document was no longer valid.
In the years since your passing I have met with politicians and organizations and have discovered that this happens to many, many families and it is often not brought to the publics attention in the way that it should be to protect other children.
Much work has been done on this platform but so much more needs to be done to prevent sensless tragedies as the one your Mom , Dad and the rest of our family has had to endure and will endure for the rest of our existence!

We love you with all of our heart!

PLEASE MAKE YOUR PROFILE PIC THIS BLUE HEART UNTIL AFTER 9/29 (P'Nut's Birthday)AND WHEN OTHERS ASK ABOUT IT PLEASE SHARE HIS STORY AND LET THEM KNOW TO PLEASE SHARE HIS STORY AND TO CHECK AND RECHECK THE LICENSING (Call the agencies and verify) AND CRIMINAL BACKGROUND OF THE PROVIDER FOR YOUR CHILD!

I am going to try this yet again as apparently the last post /link I put up someone said was a scam.
Please note what I post here I post to help parents and children not to harm.

I am still working on the investigation as to claims that the last link was a scam and if it was I will address it appropriately.

3,758 children are reported missing in the D.C. area every year. Be prepared for the worst with a McGruff Safe Kit (limit 5 per address).

We love and miss you Everyday! September is especially for P'Nut ~ as he passed on September 15th 2011 in the unlicensed day care of a fraudulent , convicted felon daycare provider.
P'Nut was born on September 29th 2010.
For the rest of the month will be posting a different picture daily, in P'Nuts honor! ๐Ÿ’™

So... My grandson's daycare provider is facing 2 felony charges in Loudoun County on top of the one she got the year she was watching my grandson ( NONE pertaining to P'Nuts passing thus far)

.
So while Loudoun has yet to charge her with the class 4 Felony (I am still working on this ) she committed prior to and during the time of watching my grandson , she is currently being charged with 2 other felonies she commited in the past 2 years.
She is fraudulent and has been since prior to watching P'NUT. If only we knew beforehand.

I am trying to work on his cause as much as I can though life gets in the way and recently I broke my back.

While my work on P'nuts cause and death is slow as life gets in the way. God is faithful.

Cassandra told many lies about P'nut's parent's and myself his Grandmother, but you see in God's due time he is revealing her character.

I remained calm 5 months ago , when she was sitting very close to me on the public bus, and I actually felt sorry for her for the character she has, but she continues to be a criminal and break the law.

You see sometimes people think they get away with things but God will see justice done in one form or another. He is always In Ultimate control.

This woman is a threat to the community as a fraudulent person and habitual law breaker. ๐Ÿ™

Side note - though the we did not speak of it amongst ourselves , we were so very grateful to celebrate P'Nuts little brother's second birthday. Ironically , Cassandra Gray got charged with multiple charges within a few days of P'Nut's little brother's Birthday. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™

Babysitter Jailed After Kids Take Car For Joyride

Back to bringing some awareness. I wonder how many other home daycare providers are on prescription drugs like this one? Prescription drugs played a part in the life of P'nuts babysitter as well. Sad thing is there isn't really a way for a parent to know if the babysitter is using them while doing child care.

CLOVER, S.C. (CBSNews) -- South Carolina police say two children went for a joyride and crashed their babysitter's car into a tree, and the woman who was supposed to be watching them is now in jail. The Herald of Rock Hill reports 30-year-old Mary Frances Harmon of Clover faces child neglect and dru...
